genetic analysis of beak and feather disease virus derived from a cockatiel (nymphicus hollandicus) in japan.psittacine beak and feather disease (pbfd), which is caused by beak and feather disease virus (bfdv), has been reported in a wide range of psittacine species, except the cockatiel (nymphicus hollandicus), in which pbfd has rarely been reported. we detected bfdv from a case of pbfd in a cockatiel in the present study. the virus was designated co-ja. the whole genome sequence of co-ja had from 86 to 98% homology with bfdvs in psittacine species. co-ja clustered with isolates derived from other coc ...201020035119
a blocking elisa for the detection of antibodies to psittacine beak and feather disease virus (bfdv).currently, the only diagnostic test available routinely for the sero-diagnosis of bfdv is the haemagglutination-inhibition (hi) assay. this test, whilst useful and applicable to samples from a wide range of psittacine birds, is not an ideal assay; it requires erythrocytes from live animals, virus purified from the feathers of infected birds and polyclonal antibody preparations in order to perform the assay. variations in these reagents make consistency between tests difficult to achieve, undersc ...200919428582
the sensitivities of various erythrocytes in a haemagglutination assay for the detection of psittacine beak and feather disease virus.the erythrocytes of various species were tested in psittacine beak and feather disease (pbfd) virus haemagglutination (ha) and haemagglutination inhibition assays to determine which are suitable for use in these assays. ha activity was observed for erythrocytes of the salmon-crested cockatoo, the sulphur-crested cockatoo, the umbrella cockatoo, the goffin's cockatoo and the cockatiel, with differences amongst individuals within species, but not for erythrocytes of humans, the pig, the guinea pig ...200011014065
beak and feather disease virus infection in cockatiels (nymphicus hollandicus).psittacine beak and feather disease is known to occur in a wide range of psittacine species; however, there are no scientific or credible anecdotal reports of psittacine beak and feather disease occurring in the cockatiel (nymphicus hollandicus) despite it being one of the world's most commonly kept companion bird species. consequently, this has resulted in speculation that the species may have some innate resistance to beak and feather disease virus (bfdv) infection. to investigate this hypothe ...200818202953
development and applications of a monoclonal antibody to a recombinant beak and feather disease virus (bfdv) capsid protein.the development of diagnostic assays for detecting beak and feather disease virus (bfdv) has traditionally been hampered by the difficulty associated with producing suitable reagents, namely purified virus and polyclonal antibodies. in an effort to develop a consistent and standardised source of antibody, a monoclonal antibody to a recombinant bfdv capsid protein has been developed and its use in western blotting, immunohistochemistry (ihc), elisa and haemagglutination-inhibition (hi) assays cha ...200817942162
